Star or Spectator... it's your choice.

One of the most famous lines written by playwright William Shakespeare is “All the world is a stage and all of the men and women are merely players”.  Think about it.  The idea that we are all actors and actresses playing roles in a grand adventure on a world stage is an analogy that most people would not think absurd.  Each day you and I are waking up and going forth to play our parts in an exceedingly complex interactive drama or possibly a divine comedy.   Some people love drama and that is certainly easy to create but I think most of us, if asked, would say that we preferred to have fun.  But what is it all about?  What is the meaning of life?  The circumstances and events that give each person meaning may be very different but those individual “meanings” or achievements are all discovered in the same way – by pursuing your Joy – having fun. 

There are a lot of us playing this massive interactive adventure game with new players starting the game every day and others exiting the playing field all of the time.  Some people claim to think that there is really no order at all and that evolution and any concept of divine Creation is nonsense.    They think that instead, it is all just happening by chance and is ultimately totally random and ultimately meaningless.  Well, that is just fine for them and if that’s what they want for the premise of their story, they can still do fine.  Regardless, can we agree that having a good time and enjoying the ride is better than being miserable and just hoping it will all end soon?  I am quite confident that everyone reading this would like to be having an ever more enjoyable life on a day to day basis.
This brings us to a fork in the road.  As the popular philosopher, Yogi Berra said, “when you come to a fork in the road, take it.”  When it comes to this life adventure, any choice is better than no choice at all.  If you pay attention to your instincts – how do you “feel” about each of the options?  Going with “your gut” or letting your heart be your guide will never take you down the wrong road.  We’ll get into a bit more about how all of that works in a bit but here is your first choice.  Do you want to Create your Reality or spend your life just reacting to what goes on around you? 

If you have realized the Reality of the matter, then next you need to hopefully decide that you are going to be a star and not just a spectator. (either is OK... it's a no-fault universe but if you are reading this, you have it in you to be a PLAYER - and a really GOOD one!) www.TransformingReality.com
